A Taste Of Work and A Woodland Wedding

My excuse for neglecting this blog is that I have been really busy. I've been doing work experience at Art Alliance Media for two weeks and had a jolly good time. I now know how to book films into cinemas, duplicate drives, check drives and send them on their merry way. Same with trailers. I am quite looking forward to adding AAM to my CV. But the down side, early mornings. Getting up at 7am for me everyday was quite the struggle. Once I had downed my first coffee of the day I was on a roll and made my annoying journey to work. Annoying because Kensington Olympia station is one stop away from Earl's Court but only arrives once (if I'm lucky) every hour! Or so it seemed. After two weeks of this routine, I finally got used to waking up early, that's just how it goes.

But this work experience was cut short by a day as I had my second wedding of the year to go to, Jeanette (my cousin, Claire's sister) and Paul's. The wedding was in Norwich Cathedral and there was a bit of confusion as to what wedding was at what cathedral, a few people had to quickly dash away. Then after the ceremony we all gathered to a awesome place in the woods. We were greeted with pear cider and we were all, as Jeanette said, free and minglely. There were tents, toad stools and bails of hay to sit on, cupcakes with afternoon tea, a fantastic bbq, an amazing live band and not forgetting the archery on the front lawn. The whole day was so much fun, I ended up dancing most of the night, while taking rests in between the rose wine (yes, I didn't learn my lesson) and the pink lemonade. They played a few song that Annie and I remembered from when we were young, in the car on long journeys. In between the music and wine we also had the most amazing wedding cake, white sponge with jam and cream inside, so delicious. When  I described the cake to my Grandad later, I swear his eyes got wider and wider. After the music we were all given a lantern each to light up and release into the night sky. And just like in Tangled, all the lanterns, apart from one that got stuck in a tree, were let of. They looked so pretty against the dark sky. It was a perfect end to the day. On the way back home, we did make a few stops, one of which was at this models and toy expo shop that was situated just off the motorway. It was amazing to see all the toys I used to play with. Lego, Duplo, Sylvanians and of course Playmobil. They even had their own Jurassic park Park!

After the extra long journey back the next day, Roller Derby was meant to follow, but the lack of sleep and energy I had to settle to hear the good news over facebook, Steam Rollers won the championship!

Now the great job search continues! And along the way I will be throwing many things out in my quest for a tidy atmosphere!
